This week we’ve got three new movies this week, No Escape, We Are Friends, Diary of a Teenage Girl. No Escape and We Are Friends are kind of let downs. No Escape is a movie where you just really never believe the main characters are in danger, but you’re supposed to…i.e. the main characters don’t die, you know they’re not gonna die but your supposed to be scared for them…it’s a let down. We Are Friends is ok, but Wes Bentley is so good in the movie that whenever he’s not on the screen you just want more Wes Bentley and since he’s a small character you spend most of the time wishing he were there which is not good for this movie.
EVERYBODY GO SEE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL NOW. It’s a master piece of a movie and that really everybody should see. That said it’s borderline NC-17 and really uncomfortable…but it’s powerful

Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. In the news this week, Steven Spielberg to direct “Ready Player One.” “Fifty Shades Darker” gets a new director because author EL James was a pain in the ass. Hugh Jackman says he is done with “Wolverine” after the new movie. Idris Elba may play the next “Star Trek” villain. There’s a possible “Office” movie starring Ricky Gervais. Finally the website “Film Threat” funded by Chris Gore is doing a kick starter campaign to keep the site up and running.
The new movies this week include “Home,” “Get Hard,” and “It Follows.” Josh and I have kids and we got out of this movie, but Sean still had to go and it’s not bad. It’s not Pixar, but it’s got enough heart. Rent it for your kids when it comes out.
“Get Hard” is an awful movie with two really funny guys in it which makes it watchable, but hell I’d just watch Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell do the late night circuit. “It Follows” is the independent horror that got so much buzz that it got a wide release. It’s fine, we all appreciate it on different levels but it’s not a game changer by any means. It’s a meta movie and then some.
Our Undisputed Classic is the Paul Newman classic “Cool Hand Luke.” For the first time Sean hadn’t seen the classic but Josh and I had. Josh and I loved it Sean liked it…a little. Sean’s wrong though.
1985 – Desperately Seeking Susan, King David, The Slugger’s Wife, Police Academy 2, The Care Bear Movie
Welcome to The I Hate Critics Movie Review Podcast. Are you interested in a new “Ghostbusters” Universe? Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd are interested. There’s lots of “Star Wars” news. There are several sequel rumors floating around including “Frozen,” “ Zoolander” and “Mallrats.” Tim Burton is going to make a live action “Dumbo” movie. Jamie Foxx claims he’s going to play Mike Tyson in a Martin Scorsese movie. Sarah Jones finally received some justice.
This weeks big release was “Cinderella.” It made $70 million and everybody loves it. Sean even said that this movie wasn’t made for him and he still loved it. Josh watched the movie alone in an emptry theater at 10:40 pm. Just saying. The “Frozen” short in front of “Cinderella” was pretty good too.
Liam Neeson has a new action movie out. We once again discuss beating up Liam Neeson and Ed Harris, but not Vincent D’onofrio. Sean caught a documentary called “The Wrecking Crew” about probably the most important group of American musicians is the 50’s & 60’s.
Our Undisputed Classic is Ingmar Bergman’s “The Seventh Seal.” This movie sounds amazing; I wish I got the chance to see it. It’s been ripped off a million times.
1985 – “Def-Con 4” and “Sylvester”
